Hi Danil,

I'm sorry to say that leafnode isn't meant to serve new groups into
hierarchies - it is designed for different purposes.

Technically, leafnode is a store-and-forward proxy for existing groups
(so it pretends to be and acts as though it were a newsreader to Usenet
servers, and acts as a NNTP news server locally, with a news spool as a
cache on your disk), and version 2 can also act as a local server for
local groups - these are only shared between newsreaders that connect
directly and will not be forwarded to other servers either way.  Not
through UUCP, not through IHAVE... (feed style) not through POST (as
news readers do).

It can't do that.  You need INN, Diablo, CNews, or DNews, or similar
software for that.
